With testing now underway for the 2015 World Superbike season (as long as weather permits), Dorna is offering their video pass again, giving you access to all the action.
The pass will set you back €69.90 (around $100 CAD) for the season, or €7.49 (roughly $10 CAD) a month. For your money, you get live or on-demand racing action delivered over your computer, including both races and practices. Dorna also includes 26-minute post-race review segments after each event.
You also can access archived racing footage going all the way back to 1993, and race reviews going back to 2006. Better invest in a big screen …
Of course, the WSB video pass is not new, and Dorna has also offered a similar service for MotoGP for a while. However, the FIM motorcycle race sanctioning organization has announced a two-year deal that sees Dorna pick up the rights to several other motorcycle championships.
Under the arrangement, Dorna will broadcast
What’s not clear is whether the deal also includes Internet broadcasting rights, or just applies to television broadcasting. If it’s available on the boob tube, it’ll eventually end up on the Internet no matter what, but it would be a fantastic treat for fans of these niche racing series if they were able to subscribe to the championships they’ve long lacked access to.
